    Those bunch of hypocrites, if they’re so against people having guns then don’t call the police. They have guns, if someone breaking into your home, don’t call the police, if someone is robbing you at gun point, don’t call the police. If someone is assaulting you, don’t call the police. But you know what? They’ll call an armed individual to come to their rescue. ARMED!!! BUNCH OF HYPOCRITICAL IDIOTS!!!!

    Beto giving hints that there will be other mass shootings until the US complies with tyrants.
    The blood will flow until they understand
    Its funny how shootings kick up durinh election season
    Protesters only come out after shootings, insteadnof every day on the capital steps
    How abortion people are all of a sudden worried about childrens rights..but are still killing them.
    How beto only comes out to protest after stuff happens

    Hello fellow men, 23 year old lady here. Back in 2020 I was almost abducted at a gas station in broad day. Abductor didn’t know I had a 9mm on me cocked and ready to blow. A woman is always 9/10 out power physically by a man. A piece of iron ups those odds in some dirty situation. *Im not voting to change the age to purchase a gun.* Girls need protection for themselves. 25 years old to purchase a gun???? That’s half of your life gone.. waiting to purchase an object meant to be used with care and “safety”.

    Truly ignorant protesters. They keep believing the same wicked grifters shoveling bullshitt in their mouths. Beta O’ is a nothing but a craven weasel wholly given over to the spirit of the age

    I do not believe there ever was a shooting at Robb Elementary School, having watched quite a bit of the Uvalde media interviews myself, and noticing that not a single one of them showed the slightest bit of human emotion. Including a child who claimed to have been in the classroom while it happened?

  7. Rudolf Borsics on July 22, 2022 at 7:30 pm

    Beto the gender confused mexican agitating for his socialist-liberal agenda.

  8. Jay Fro on July 22, 2022 at 7:32 pm

    Can’t control them emotions anymore huh

  9. M & M on July 22, 2022 at 7:33 pm

    ban AR15 which there is no legitimate reason for a regular citizen to have, but not guns…and lets address the root of the issue: significant increase in single parent homes; increase in emotionally/psychologically neglected children and teens; increase of children / teens spending time isolated from family/others; increase in children/teens spending hours at at time on social media….the research is there (look it up) how these are the factors negatively affected children and teenagers at alarming rates, but everyone is turning the other way and focusing on gun control….most shooters have been bullied, have been neglected by parents, or parents are separated/divorce…bring what matters most: family/faith values and morals (and to have faith you don’t have to go to church or belong to a religion)

    How Many People Die From Drunk Driving? Around 10,000 people die every year from drunk driving – that equals 29 people every day, or over one an hour. Drunk driving is a factor in one in three deaths on American roads. THEY NEED TO GO PROTEST OUT SIDE MILLER LITE

  13. Dale Boxsell on July 22, 2022 at 7:38 pm

    Simple solution is to arm the teachers that way if someone tries this again they can easily be stopped just like the heroic woman in Charleston.

  14. George Ybañez on July 22, 2022 at 7:40 pm

    Why are they protesting the law abiding? Go protest criminals and your democratic leaders who have failed by passing laws that do nothing and continue to let criminals go free.

  15. connie williams on July 22, 2022 at 7:42 pm

    🏃‍♂️ donny, 🏃‍♂️

  16. Mitchell Thomas on July 22, 2022 at 7:44 pm

    That sign pictured is so ironic. If it weren’t for gun free zones a good guy with a gun might have been right there to stop it. Evidently any laws passed won’t do anything to stop these punks because there are laws against murder and he ignored that one.

  17. cash storeone on July 22, 2022 at 7:46 pm

    I wonder how many of those anti-American gun haters, will put a "gun free zone" sign in their front yard.

  18. Garry l Wade on July 22, 2022 at 7:46 pm

  19. Steve Harvey on July 22, 2022 at 7:47 pm

    Seems to me it wasn’t all that long ago, they were screaming " defund the Police".

  20. Frank Rizzo on July 22, 2022 at 7:51 pm

    It’s funny when Beto was running for Texas governor he said he wasn’t going to take your guns….. Never let a tragedy go to waste

  21. Gladys Martinez-Cisneros on July 22, 2022 at 7:52 pm

    Something isn’t adding up with these past two massacres: 10 dead in New York at a supermarket and now 21 innocent lives at Elementary school!!!!!

    Weird how they use the platform to mention gun control laws, instead of offering more security to our schools, children, teachers and staff!!!

    Guns will always be loose in someone’s home regardless of all fkg gun laws!!!

    It might be time to train all school staff to protect innocent lives at every school and have police officers at every school and metal detectors!!!!!

    Taxes money must go to schools to prevent and protect every innocent life, instead of gun control!!!

  22. karla newman on July 22, 2022 at 7:52 pm

    I really have empathy for these people!!! They just don’t get it. The answer is not banning guns! I can see better vetting. Especially gun shows. But the root is not GUNS but a break down in society. Young men unable to express emotion. No Father figure. Hopelessness. Too much F***ing violence on computers.
    It’s easy to say "it’s the guns". It’s much harder to heal and help a society.

  23. Sibusiso Fanti on July 22, 2022 at 7:53 pm

    “Is is incumbent on us to find out what is behind these massacres.”

    I don’t know… access to guns?

    🤔NRA Convention Was Also Held Just Days After Columbine

  25. Heather O’Donnell on July 22, 2022 at 7:56 pm

    I see the right wing cult is in full swing in the comments 🤣🤣

  26. David Smith on July 22, 2022 at 7:56 pm

    what’s the action lol he passed a gun back ground check emotional actions are not right nor will they work it’s been proven not to mention veto o Rourke standing on the graves of the kids for a planned political stunt absolutely disgusting the NRA’s has little to no power and dems are literally skipping the solution for power it’s just sick

    "The man who has no sense of history, is the man who has no ear or eyes"  Adolf Hitler
    After disarming the Soviet population, Joseph Stalin murdered 20 million people.  After disarming the chinese population, MaoTse-Tung murdered 40 million people. After disarming the German population, Adolf Hitler murdered 14 million people In 1911, Turkey established gun control. From 1915 to 1917, 1.5 million Armenians, unable to defend themselves, were exterminated. AND THE LIST GOES ON.   MASS MURDERS AGREE: GUN CONTROL WORKS.   Beware when a gov’t wants to disarm people, for they are not concerned in protecting you, but CONTOLLING YOU!!!  "The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government."   Thomas Jefferson

    The most foolish mistake we could possibly make would be to allow the subjugated races to possess arms. History shows that all conquerors who have allowed their subjugated races to carry arms have prepared their own downfall by so doing. Indeed, I would go so far as to say that the supply of arms to the underdogs is a sine qua non for the overthrow of any sovereignty. So let’s not have any native militia or native police.” -Adolf Hitler
                                                        
    To conquer a nation, you must first disarm its citizens."  Adolf Hitler                                
                                                                          “One man with a gun can control 100 without one.” – Vladimir Ilyich Lenin

    “All political power comes from the barrel of a gun. The communist party must command all the guns, that way, no guns can ever be used to command the party.” – Mao Tze Tung!
                                                                             "All propaganda must be popular and its  intellectual level must be adjusted to the most limited intelligence among those it is addressed to." Adolf Hitler
                                                                        “What country can preserve its liberties if their rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance. Let them take arms.” – Thomas Jefferson

    "The size of the lie is a definite factor in causing it to be believed, for the vast masses of the nation are in the depths of their hearts more easily deceived than they are consciously and intentionally bad. The primitive simplicity of their minds renders them a more easy prey to a big lie than a small one, for they themselves often tell little lies but would be ashamed to tell a big one." Adolf Hitler

  28. Coach Anderson on July 22, 2022 at 7:58 pm

    I feel sorry for the Protesters, What a bunch idiots! NRA is your police officers, your firefighters, your grandpas! Screw them.

  29. Master Chief on July 22, 2022 at 7:58 pm

    Shame on Beto

  30. Erica 547 on July 22, 2022 at 7:59 pm

    These criminals should be locked up NOW!

  31. Coach Anderson on July 22, 2022 at 8:00 pm

    They said you have only police to protect you, Hell no; I’m not waiting 48 mins to wait for police officer to save my me and my family, that is why I carry CCW! You cannot stop them unless you address the real mental health problems in the USA! Beto is idiot!

  32. John Paul Webb on July 22, 2022 at 8:00 pm

    Look at all the police protecting gun owners from people with signs. How many police officers were protecting those innocent children?

  33. Michael Garrow on July 22, 2022 at 8:03 pm

    Next the protesters are going to a liquor store to protest drunk drivers….

  34. Coach Anderson on July 22, 2022 at 8:04 pm

    Guns have not killed anybody! This is not about guns! This is about Mental health and people needing help!

  35. William Rowlands on July 22, 2022 at 8:06 pm

    Weren’t these the same people out there a couple weeks ago protesting about Roe v Wade possibly being overturned by the supreme court? Guess that was last week’s "thing" since we don’t hear anything more about it. Now gun control is this week’s "thing" to protest about. Wonder how many of these protesters were still wearing their Ukrainian flag pins from last month’s "thing". 🤔

  36. liberty spike on July 22, 2022 at 8:06 pm

    For those who don’t know we already have background checks in every state. The only exception is private sales which 99% of the time occur between friends and family who know the person they are selling too well. And btw Ramos passed a background check because guess what, background checks can’t predict a person’s future behavior. And before anyone comments about "assault weapons" sueng hui Cho killed 32 people at va tech with two 9mm handguns. Columbine happened during the Clinton assault weapons ban. All of the guns they used were ban complient besides the sawed off shotgun which btw was a break action single shot affair. (It only held 1 round at a time).

  37. the party's over on July 22, 2022 at 8:07 pm

    everything will die down in a week or so, people can’t afford to be out in the streets protesting, they have to work work work, pay those credit card bills.

  38. Andy Nash on July 22, 2022 at 8:07 pm

    Welp, not to make light of anything, but a tragedy did occur and there are many (daily horrific events) I can think of : “Defund “ the police ; Poor diets (fast foods); and “Drugs” ; where is the outrage ; not to mention the value of life with inflation, where is the outrage, where? I’m tired of these stunts

  39. unseenufo on July 22, 2022 at 8:13 pm

    Its everyone’s fault but the shooter.

  40. joe west on July 22, 2022 at 8:13 pm

    I can actually tell you if anyone of these people had a gun pointed at them , they would change there tune , they have no idea how important are second amendment really is! Chicago Is such a safe place right , I wouldn’t send my kids stuffed animals there !! The police come after a shooting , or in Texas case stand there and watch kids get murdered!! The police will not protect you , you have a right to protect your family and yourselves, use it !

  41. TS on July 22, 2022 at 8:14 pm

    America sending weapons to Ukraine to train children to murder

  42. liberty spike on July 22, 2022 at 8:16 pm

    500 protesters.? How many are there attending the NRA convention ?

  43. safety first in texas on July 22, 2022 at 8:16 pm

    suddenly the group who wants to murder babies up and after birth. but become outraged after 19 school aged kids are murdered. guess their mad the 18 year old beat them to it.
    you cant be dual minded, it destroys your reasonableness.

  44. TRISH MESHELL on July 22, 2022 at 8:17 pm

    The nuts come out for the biggest Nut Beto O’Rourke!!!

  45. Lucifer Jones on July 22, 2022 at 8:18 pm

    I just bought another AR

  46. Sarah Dobbin on July 22, 2022 at 8:22 pm

    Please vote no more guns
    Good luck all

  47. Christiaan on July 22, 2022 at 8:23 pm

    All the conservatives in the comments that think every single democrat believes guns should be banned are retards. The average democrat like myself believes guns shouldn’t be banned, but things like AR-15s shouldn’t be readily available to anyone under 21 without background checks. No 18 year old should be able to buy weapons of mass destruction. Nobody needs an assault rifle for hunting.

  48. Shane Stokes on July 22, 2022 at 8:25 pm

    Stupid is running rampant in this country guns don’t kill people mental people kill people we have a major mental health crisis in this country wake up!!

  49. James White on July 22, 2022 at 8:25 pm

    The irony is, if someone came shooting at them, they’d be calling someone with a gun to stop the shooter. Such ignorance

  50. Kent Oguma on July 22, 2022 at 8:25 pm

    There is no point baning guns when theres so many already on the street
